Now on to my two projects for today!
First up is my banner.

 I have created a very fun "Love" Banner using some stamps and dies from Laura's Loft.
I first die cut out the largest die from the Tag Buddies Set and layered it on top of some pink pattered paper from Graphic 45.

Next, I used the 2nd largest die in the set and the Curtis Background stamp on some vellum and attached that to the tag.

Now for the embellishments! I used some wood letters to spell out "love" and used some WOW embossing powder in platinum to add some sparkle. I also used some glittery enamel dots to the side of each letter.

I attached the tags with some pink lace from my stash, and added a glittery rose flower to the top and a bakers twine bow to the bottom to finish it off.
 
I hope you like my project for today and don't forget to hop over to the next blog for your chance to win!
 
 
My next project is a card for a friend.

For this card I have used Altenew Whimsical Flowers Stamp and Dies, and also the Halftone Hello Stamp and Die from Altenew as well.
 
I matted my card at the top and bottom with some patterned and plain black paper. I then used some watercolours in muted green tones for the background.
 |I stamped out the images and then die cut them using my Big Kick.
 Now it is time to assemble. I used some multi medium matte to glue down the halftone hello word, and also for the flowers as well.
Some of the flowers and leaves I used dimensional tape to pop them up and give interest. I used more watercolour in black for the flower stems. Lastly, I used a wooden butterfly from my stash and come little pearls for accents.
I hope you like my projects today and will pop over to Laura's Store to see all the great goodies she has!!
